Clydesdale Bank CEO, David Duffy said:
“It’s always exciting to be leading the way in innovation and we appreciate the support we’ve had from De La Rue in helping to bring the £5 polymer note project to completion. We are now turning our attention to the next polymer denomination – the £10 – which will be introduced into circulation in 2017.”
